A matinee game at Amalie Arena sees the Tampa Bay Lightning (44-21-7) two wins short of tying the franchise's best win total in a single season (46 - done a few times). They face a challenge trying to inch closer to that mark as the opponent is the Boston Bruins (36-24-12).
Like the Detroit Red Wings on Friday, the Bruins played last night in Sunrise, losing 2-1 in the shootout to the Panthers. They also needed to be conscious of the scoreboard as the team chasing them for the final wild card spot, the Ottawa Senators, were also playing. Ottawa thumped the Toronto Maple Leafs and are now a single point behind Boston.
